  1. Micic lost 5-4. He'll be in repechage to try for third
  2. Yianni would have teched everybody at 65kg and then went up to the absolute division and beat Sadulaev in the finals by tech.
  3. You are correct, Zain lost to Pico for the Jr World team spot 2 years in a row.
  4. No. Dosho has had a really bad arm(I think elbow) injury the past year and even though she won the Asian Games, she hasn't been able to compete much. Stock has really come into her own during that time and I would definitely pick her as the favorite to win her weight class as well as the Olympics.
  5. Pretty much what I would have said. Especially about Susaki. Like I had mentioned in another thread....we and other nations were going to do much better than normal just because Japan's #1s aren't at all weights this year due to Olympic weight jockeying and how their committee guaranteed automatic spots for medalists that were in Olympic weight classes at this year's World Championships. If they didn't guarantee those spots, I definitely think more #1s would have stayed at non Olympic weights. It looks like Russia is going to win the Womens team title. at 50kg, Irie made that big mistake against Sun and had her base way too high trying to get away from that single and went airborne. 50kg in Japan's trials next year is going to be so good. Irie, Susaki, Tosaka. at 53kg, Mukaida just got trapped against that gut and could never get out. Just made that one little mistake and it's over. at 55, Irie is very good and barely lost, but not Japan's #1 at this weight(it's Mukaida who dropped to 53kg). Let's give credit to Winchester who went out and won, though!
  6. That is very true. Irie's base was way too high when she was trying to counter that single by Sun and had some frequent flier miles as a result.
  7. I bet you anything Stadnik is thanking the heavens Susaki isn't in the finals against her(I guess I can say that for Vuc as well) this year after getting teched by Susaki last year. I think Stadnik finally breaks the drought and gets another gold again after 10 years of mainly losing to Hitomi Obara and Eri Tosaka in the finals of the WCs or Olympics.
  8. Crazy match between Irie and Sun at 50kg. Not surprised at Sun winning that match.
  9. I don't see why they wouldn't. They have been in the WCWA against one of the big names(Simon Frasier), but who knows. Especially since the NCAA is US only unless I'm missing something.
  10. That's what I'm hoping for because I don't really see a reason why they'd go back to folkstyle now except for the fact that the NCAA might want continuity between mens and womens NCAA DI wrestling styles.
  11. Are they going folkstyle instead of the current collegiate womens system(WCWA or NAIA) that uses freestyle?
  12. I think we'll do well. The most important thing to remember is that any of Japan's #1s at non-Olympic weights last year went for the Olympic weight this year. Meaning: Japan's #2s or #3s are at the non-Olympic weights.
  13. It's crazy to think that Yuki Irie, this year's rep for Japan at 50kg is the only person to have ever beaten Susaki, let alone beating her 3 times! Just a bad style matchup. Looking back, Yuki was Junior World Champion in 2012 and hasn't been able to be Japan's rep since 2012 because she lost to: Hitomi Obara: 8x senior world champion, 2012 Olympic champion Eri Tosaka: 3x senior world champion, 2016 Olympic champion, 1x 2nd senior Yui Susaki: 2x senior world champion, 2x junior world champion, 3x cadet world champion Yuki's sister(Namami)) is also Japan's rep at 55kg. She beat 2x defending senior world champion, Haruna Okuno. There is also a youngest Irie sister who is also very good, but didn't win her weight class this year.
  14. I don't know if you remember, but it took Metcalf several years to be able to finish shots cleanly and actually score. He would get scored on from a counter almost every first score of a match early on in his senior level career. Hi-C, get countered and scored on like clockwork.
  15. Taylor never even got close to gaining control over Dake in their title match, let alone being dominant in a victory since he never beat Dake in college(or senior level).
  16. It's a World Team. There's plenty of years left for Yianni to make one and represent our country. It's not like his NCAA career where he only has 2 more years of wrestling eligibility left.
  17. I'm guessing from this comment that Zain hung out with Mark Hall a lot since the last match against Yianni.
  18. Are you asking about this match or every flo event in particular?
  19. I just want to see part 3 in a few weeks. Hopefully it'll live up to the hype since last year's match.
  20. No. Aaron beat him by 2 points in the 2016 Olympic team trial quarterfinals, 11-9. They're both good friends, but somebody had to win.
  21. The interesting thing that you'll see A LOT in Japan is that siblings on the senior, junior and cadet teams are very prominent. Yuki Irie, who beat out Susaki at 50kg this year has a younger sister(Namami-former cadet and junior world champion) who beat Haruna Okuko 3-1 at a non-Olympic weight of 55kg. Okuno had lost to her college teammate, reigning 55kg senior world champion( 2017 2nd, 2016 world senior world champion), Mayu Mukaida when Mukaida dropped down to 53kg. One of the most famous examples in Japan on the womens side of siblings are Kaori Icho(the legend) and her older sister, Chiharu Icho- 3x senior world champion, 2x Olympic silver medalist(2004 and 2008). They both competed at the same time
